15 Reasons To Love Being A Family Lawyer
If you’ve kept up with our blogs long enough, there’s likely been a time or two when you’ve heard this story: My father, who I love dearly, has always had a deep distaste for lawyers. I remember being a young man and having him tell me how one attorney he used for various business dealings relied on a stopwatch to keep track of the billing in his case.
Every … second … accounted for. There was no emotion, no relationship – just business. My dad’s feelings toward lawyers never softened over time, so needless to say, he wasn’t too thrilled when I chose family law as my profession.
“Lawyers divide wealth. They create none,” he said.
To my dad’s credit, I know how proud he is of how I care and build relationships with my clients. He sees that I am different and that the reason I got into family law in Flower Mound, TX was to help people and provide value. It is a rewarding experience when you can step into a difficult situation and walk a family through it, answer their questions, be the voice of reason, and achieve for them the best possible result.
Family Law is a specialized area of civil litigation and involves anything that has to do with the family relationship. This includes divorce, adoption, child custody, and child support.
